Well, then I guess I'd better see about taking it down then. It's one thing if a movie comes out with no notice, but it's another when some sly dog edits the notice out. Sharp eye, Bill. Thanks for pointing that out. Since it has finnally been made available ligitimately by Shout Factory, I'll have to get a copy myself.

I think it's also likely that the copyright notice was left off of pre-release copies of the film for whatever reason. It would have been easy for copyright holders to stop theatrical release of an altered copy and sue the pants off of anyone who did remove the notice for that purpose, and I can't see why anyone would bother to alter a print of a film with such a small distribution.

Anyway, the Shout! Factory copy is great, as are their DVDs of Attack of the Crab Monsters and War of the Satellites. I'm guessing that they were made from Corman's own prints.

My favorite DVD release of the past few years (at least), and a must for anyone who loves fifties sci-fi b-movies, IMHO.

Well, the copy I put up was from one of those outfits who advertise in the back of some of the genre mags, like FILMFAX or FANGORIA, mags like that. The price wasn't too outrageous so I thought I'd check them out quality wise, also it was a title I'd been looking for for a long time. I don't think Shout! Factory was even around at the time I got this. And they have ATTACK OF THE CRAB MONSTERS as well, eh? I'll have to check these guys out. Maybe someday soon they'll have HAND OF DEATH with John Agar available, which is another one I've been looking high and low for.

I hear that. For years the only place to get rare b-movies were those one-man outfits, or from some friend-of-a-friend who had copies of stuff we haven't seen since we were kids watching creature features or chiller theater.

You can find the new Shout Factory triple feature DVD of Not of This Earth/Attack of the Crab Monsters/War of the Satellites on Amazon for under $15, and it comes with a ton of Corman film trailers and a nice tribute with interviews. And the movie prints are the best you're likely to see.
